- As a member of the service one does not forfeit ones right to the constitution, nor ones rights.

And nobody is saying that they cannot be members of the Christian Embassy, or any other religious organization. But they were appearing in an advertising fund-raiser for Christian Embassy in uniform. That is not something that is allowed by military regulations, nor is it something protected by the Constitution.

No doubt this has been going on for quite awhile now. I understand the military’s tortured logic for getting permission from “their subordinates.” This is what needs to be challenged and changed via the courts.

Why?

However, you seem to be one to love the way things are in the military, as far as this is concerned.

I spent almost 30 years in the military. I hope so.

“That is not something that is allowed by military regulations, nor is it something protected by the Constitution.”

No doubt I will not convince you of anything here... but FWIW this does not matter if it was emblazoned on the Pentagon in Gold or Bronze. It is still unconstitutional and it is wrong for the military to continue with this regulation, Period.

Hubenator: No doubt this has been going on for quite awhile now. I understand the military’s tortured logic for getting permission from “their subordinates.” This is what needs to be challenged and changed via the courts.
NS: Why?

- Because it is blatantly unconstitutional. It has caused many to forfeit rights they would otherwise have as a citizen...some people do everything in their military uniforms and it does not construe tacit approval...

- No doubt, I could have guessed this by how you were defending the way things are in the military. Some old things die hard and this “regulation” needs to die. You know what? I did not enjoy MASH (the program) until after I had spent some time in the military. Sure, major hyperbole is used in the show, but it worked because of the elements of truth :)

Thank you for giving me, my wife, and my children a free country to grow up in.
